Clueless

After watching qualifying, all my predictions went out the window. I don't have a clue. I think Hayden will finish in front of Rossi. Suzuki won't have a race tire. Edwards is gonna win it. Roberts will be there early, but he won't be a match for CEII. Tamada is my wildcard.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

Rossi, Hayden, KRJr, Edwards. Pedrosa will crash out. Hopper will do well and finish top 6. Vermulan will do alright and finish top 10.

But, with all the media hype on this race, hard to tell if if isn't fixed for Hayden to take first.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

I think all the media hype has been aimed at KR and Colin, personally. Hayden seems to be workin from the backburner to me. I dont have Speed, or a MotoGP subscription, so maybe Im wrong..

oh by the way, if anyone wants to PM me some PPV links to the motogp site, that'd be swell.

They are carrying so much speed into the corners at times, the kick of the leg helps with the weight transfer toward the direction of the turn and placing more bodyweight onto the front of the bike.

Hayden is my favorite, but I wouldn't mind seeing Edwards win with Nicky 2nd, and someone else not in the points race on the podium (Roberts, Hopper).
